Failed film!


Chapter Art's in Cardiff just held a Festival of Failure this weekend, they had stalls of s****y prizes, for example unlabeled tins and broken toys. I loved this idea, but I didn't play any of the carnival type games as I really didnt want to carry scrable peices around with me. Chapter also set up a contest  where groups of people had to create a film using this failure idea. They gave us a title (for us Goliath), a prop (for every one is was a fez) and a small, in a way instructions but also some diolog for our 2 - 5 minute film. 

Ever tried
Ever failed
No matter
Try again
Fail again
Fail better

(Sam Beckett, 1906 - 1989)

I was so excited when Angelo told us about this project, and it turned out to be as fun as I thought it would be. I was the actor in the film, Kris the camera man, Angelo and Charlie the creative minds though we all contributed too each area of the film. This is a photo of me before we filmed, I change a tiny bit though, I'm wearing Charlie's Docs and no mustache in the film. 

The film turned out to be amazing, with Angelo and Charlie working on the music, Kris on the editing of the film and Jetta, the dialogue. I turned it in today and I should be able to put the film on to this blog next week, after showing it in Chapter and maybe other places like Milgi and Cineworld. 

Really looking forward to doing more films like this again!!!
